3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 0.50l. Hazy dark brown color with large frothy tan-like head, fair lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of moderate grainy malt, light roasted malt, caramel, mild herbal hops, yeast and banana. Taste starts with light sweet malt, followed by refreshingly heavy grainy acidity and frutiness, while finish is very lightly bitter, almos unnoticable. Medium body, slick texture and soft carbonation in palate. Tasty classic...

Serving: 500 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a cloudy dark brown with a large and lasting off white head. Great lacing. Toasted brown bread nose. The flavor has a hint of clove, a light toasted nut note, and lots of toasted brown bread flavor. Light to medium body, smooth on the tongue with a slightly dry finish. Very solid brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Lively pour settles down nicely to a deep rich chestnut brown with a light tan head. Nose gives a nice dark fruitiness, a light cognac, rich cream and a little bit of mixed nuts. In the flabour it’s surprisingly light, but working it a little you can dig out nuts, fruit, whisky, light oak and some toffee. Some banana, lots of yeastiness but not to the point of nasty. Decent brew!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2013 Aroma típico de malte torrado e algo que lembra caramelo. Líquido escuro, pouquíssimo brilho. Sabor leve de torrefação, caramelo e algo que lembra frutas pretas como ameixas, por exemplo. Paladar levemente seco no final e um pouco doce.

Nose is toast, cereal, slight metallic, banana. Taste is roasted malt, and wheat, bread slight syrup and chocolate in the finish odd hint of cola., Mouthfeel is thick. It’s a by the numbers dunkel, but has a personal nostalgia for me.
